This beach was busy with campers who come to swim or launch canoes and kayaks. The park has PFDs (a.k.a. life jackets) for use free-of-charge, but you’ll need to bring your own vessel. Nearby Eagle Lake Narrows Country Store rents life jackets as well, along with paddleboats, rowboats and motorboats, by the day or the week. The store also has all the fishing supplies you might need. Anglers can try to land small or large mouth bass, walleye, lake whitefish, perch and northern pike.
We started our day with a visit to the fenced, lakeside dog park. Our Labrador Retriever, Jackson, made instant friendships with 19-month-old Maximus and 8-year-old Molly (breeds unknown). The three of them charged through the water and around the park’s agility features – two climbers, a tunnel and a multi-level jump – only pausing occasionally to shower their human companions with a vigorous shake after a swim in the water.
